    This is great news. These nets (like Antenna, Laff, Cozi, etc) seem just to be scattershot with the shows they provide. I usually record Emergency! (childhood favorite) and Rockford Files (too mature for me at the time of broadcast, but love the show as an adult).
    Having said that – Benson, Growing Pains, Alice and Silver Spoons are all shows I loved growing up, and would love to watch again. Looks like my OTA DVR (Tablo) is going to be getting a workout later this year.

      You have great taste! Emergency! and The Rockford Files are two of my all-time favorite shows. I watched every available episode of both shows when they were on Netflix. When they left Netflix I bought the complete series of Emergency! on DVD and the complete series of The Rockford Files on blu-ray. I’m currently in season 1 of both series and working my way all the way through again.

        I am too cheap to buy the shows on DVD. 🙂 I did watch Emergency! a bunch while it was on Netflix. What I also need to start recording, also on COZI, is Adam 12!
        But a lot of these soon-to-be added shows I am really looking forward to. Especially Benson and Alice!

      You’re like me! – I grew up watching TV from the 70’s as a Kid

    19.6 in Austin, TX. Is Alice leaving LOGO? I have also caught Silver Spoons on something. Is Welcome Back Kotter leaving METV?

      Silver Spoons is also on Logo. Series normally rerun on cable and OTA channels (All in the Family is on AntennaTV and TV Land). They even run on different cable channels (and less frequently, different OTAs) in different time windows (Married with Children is on Logo and TBS).

      Kotter left MeTV earlier this year.

        The commercials on LOGO make it persona non grata at our house.

    These shows aren’t interesting to our family. DH is enjoying the Star Trek shows on Heroes and Icons, while I picked up all the Sharpe series on dvd. If Highlander the series were on again, I’d be interested.

      Heroes and Icons isn’t available OTA here in Atlanta (smaller towns north of here, like Athens and Gainesville, yes.. but in town.. no). A friend of mine has H&I (on Comcast) and was singing the praises of being able to watch one of her childhood faves lately – Hunter (one of mine, too). I would pay a small fee for H&I for sure!

        Drop a letter in the mail to your local stations requesting it, or post a comment on their Facebook pages. Can’t hurt to ask.
